Have You Forgotten

Red House Painters

Tom: C
 
C               F              G            Am    G    F 
I can't let you be, cause your beauty won't allow me 
C                F 
wrapped in white sheets, 
        G            Am      G   F 
like an angel from a bedtime story 
    G                  Am 
and shut out what they say, 
           F                     Am G F 
cause your friends are fucked up anyway 
    G              Am 
and when they come around, 
        F                Am  G    F 
somehow they feel up and you feel down. 
 
(same chords as above for the next verse:) 
When we were kids, we hated things our parents did 
we listened low to Casey Kasem's radio show 
that's when friends were nice, 
to think of them just makes you feel nice 
the smell of grass in spring 
and October leaves cover everything. 
 
C          G              Am G     F 
Have you forgotten how to love yourself? x2 
 
I can't believe all the good things that you do for me 
sat back in a chair like a princess from a faraway place 
nobody's nice, when you're older your heart turns to ice 
and shut out what they say; 
they're too dumb to mean it anyway 
 
When we were kids, we hated things our sisters did 
backyard summer pools and christmases were beautiful 
and the sentiment of coloured mirrored ornaments 
and the open drapes 
look out on frozen farmhouse landscapes 
 
Have you forgotten how to love yourself? x6 
 
===================== 
 
This is played with a capo on the 3rd fret. 
The F chord at all times is played with an open E string 
(the light E string, not the heavy one). 
In the Chorus, he plays the barred C and G shapes i.e. 
the C is played at the 11th fret etc. 
 
In the verse, for the C chord pull off the E note to a D, 
and for the first F chord pull off the A note to a G. 
 
The F that ends each line has a little bit that goes 
E-F-D-E  on the D string. It's easy. 
 
The one part I wasn't 100% sure about is the first F in the 
3rd and 4th lines of each verse. An F seems to work 
fine, but on the record, you can hear a B note from 
the bass. I guess it's just another of those brilliant 
Red House Painter things! Genius! I'm sticking to my 
F though.
